Porsche celebrates the legendary "917" with a special exhibition: "50 years Porsche 917 – Colors of Speed". From May 14 to September 15, 2019, 14 exhibits will be on display – including ten 917 models with a total of 7,490 hp.
As a Group 4 sports car, the 917 was specially designed for the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the World Championships. The number one was created in 1969 as the first of 25 copies required for homologation. The 917-001 marks the beginning of a strong series of success and is thus the highlight of the show.
For more than a year, museum mechanics, former technicians and engineers from Zuffenhausen and Weissach have worked together for the Porsche Archive and partner companies on its repatriation. The sports car is now for the first time in that state, as he was seen at its premiere on 12 March 1969 at the Geneva Motor Show.
The item "New exhibition for the Porsche 917" was added on May 15, 2017 in the category Novelties of Lars Wallerang with the usual keywords Sports car, history, exhibition, presentation, released.
